Wexford Foundation Update

2The Wexford Plantation Charitable Foundation and Aerial Adventure Hilton Head recently joined forces and raised $10,000 to support local charities as a part of the 2nd annual “Send A Hero” campaign. By selling certificates to local residents, Wexford Foundation enabled 100 members of the HHI Fire Rescue and 100 guests to enjoy Aerial Adventure’s 6 challenge courses followed by lunch at Up the Creek Pub & Grill next door. Roger Freedman, owner of Aerial Adenture HH, donated $10,000 in certificates plus their lunches, in support of the wonderful work both the Foundation and the Fire Rescue do.

Pizza Party

Last week we hosted a children’s cooking class, Fresh Pizza from the Garden, with our Executive Chef Frank Copeland. The event was a huge success, filling up quickly with 12 Wexford children.

The children started in the Wexford kitchen (adorned in their chef’s hats!) where they worked alongside Chef Frank, rolling out their dough, saucing their pizzas and dressing them with all the toppings they love, consisting of fresh herbs and vegetables from Wexford’s garden. While the pizzas were baking, the children then helped replenish the garden, by each planting their very own herb or vegetable. The plants were labeled with the children’s name so they can continue to watch as their plants grows.

This was an unforgettable experience for our children and we look forward to hosting more children’s cooking classes in the near future – so stay tuned!

Wexford’s PGA Junior League

Hilton Head area PGA Junior Leagues garnered some national attention this week, as Harrison Mancill (representing the Country Club of Hilton Head) and John Berrigan (representing Wexford Plantation, coached by our very own James Scales!) both hit a hole-in-one last Friday on the SAME hole in the Junior League final match at the Country Club of Hilton Head. The two boys, ages 13 and 10, had back-to-back holes in one on the 89-yard, par-3 fifth hole.

According to the National Hole in One Registry, the odds of two players from the same foursome acing the same hole are 17 million to one.

Not only did these two players receive recognition locally in the Island Packet, the story was also picked up by the PGA AND the Golf Channel’s Morning Drive. Congratulations to both players!

Wexford Yacht Club Travels to Georgia’s “Gold Coast”

Earlier this month, a group of members traveled down to St. Simons Island, part of Georgia’s “Gold Coast.” The voyage started Thursday morning, as the group headed out past Harbour Town, into the Atlantic Ocean, over to St. Simons Island (taking about 5 hours by boat). The first night they took in the scenery and grilled out dockside at the Morningstar Marina.  Friday was spent exploring the island- sightseeing, historic areas, walking the beaches and what trip would be complete without a little shopping! Friday night they had an amazing dinner at the marina’s Coastal Kitchen restaurant, overlooking the harbor at sunset. The crew packed up their belongings and returned home Saturday morning – this time traveling back through the Intracoastal Waterway, taking in new views!

The next Wexford Yacht Club trip we’ll be heading to Charleston! Stay tuned for pictures and details from that voyage!
